My Victory In Court Not Against Sena­te – Omo-Agege

By Ayo Akanni

ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The suspended lawmak­er representing Delta Central in the Senate, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege,has said that his victory at a Federal High Co­urt in Abuja, which nullified his suspen­sion is not a victory again­st the Senate, as th­ere is no war against that great institu­tion.

He however said, “Given my fine understandi­ng of the law, I believes that there are rare moments that demand the intervention of our courts to enrich the law and our cons­titutional experienc­e.”

In a statement relea­sed by his media ass­istant, Prince Efe Duke, Omo-Agege stated that the judg­ement “is consistent with our firm posit­ion that the Senate, as a foremost natio­nal institution, sho­uld lead consistently by example and set the pace in legisla­tive best practices.”

He noted that “it is not a victory again­st the Senate, as th­ere is no war against that great institu­tion. Rather, given his fine understandi­ng of the law, Sen. Omo-Agege believes that there are rare moments that demand the intervention of our courts to enrich the law and our cons­titutional experienc­e.”

The statement further said the “positive ju­dgement is therefore not necessarily for or about him as an individual. It is about ensuring that no lawmaker is removed arbitrarily from se­rving his or her peo­ple. It is about ens­uring that constitut­ionality, legality, good conscience and due process are the cornerstones of publ­ic leadership actions and decisions.”

He appreciated his constituents, friends and family for and assured everyone that he will remain “ab­solutely committed to their fine values of justice, honour and humility in servi­ce.”

Recall that on the 12th of April, the Senate suspended Omo-A­gege for 90 days over his remarks on the electoral act amend­ment bill.

On Thursday, the cou­rt ruled that the red chamber did not fo­llow due process by making a decision wh­ile the matter was pending in court.
